The "reality" of reality TV


Im am sorry to see how TV has turned the wilderness survival industry into a total debouch.Recently, I was watching the popular show "Alone", I find it hard to believe that the people on these shows are actually playing themselves. Who would be willing to degrade themselves just to get on TV? I guess many..... Hemingway said it best I think.... Ill paraphrase;
(Lets hope so)


“The celebrated develop a technique to deal with the persons they come across. They show the world a mask but take care to conceal their real selves. They play the part that is expected of them and, with practice play it very well. But, you are stupid if you think this public performance corresponds with the man within.”
